Made in the Netherlands by K.H De Jong, Rembrandt Gouda is aged over one year.

Production involves a combination of best practices - both traditional and new - in order to create Rembrandt. For instance, whereas some producers force age their Gouda with the addition of certain cultures to the milk, De Jong's cheesemakers take the high road and age their cheese the traditional way.

The result is a cheese with a smooth, firm and dense texture with occasional holes. The paste is a deep, golden yellow in color.

Flavors are of butterscotch, honey and caramel. Beyond the slight sharpness and crystallized amino acids, there is a subtle and creamy sweetness that finishes off the cheese and leaves your mouth craving more.

Pairs well with a Dark Beer or Red Wine
